Designed with traditional and modern Thai décor principles, Urban Thai Bistro offers a wide selection of traditional authentic Thai dishes to their signature fusion creations.
Established since 2000 in Yaletown, We’ve pulled back the curtain to reveal a fresh and stylish new dining space.
Much like the subtle nuances and delicate balance of spices and herbs for which Thai cuisine is renowned, our new look offers an understated but distinctive blend of rugged post-and-beam design elements with a sleek, modern look. Burnished metallic chandeliers bathe the room in warm and enticing light, rich accents of gold and ebony lend an air of casual elegance, and a host of gleaming Buddha statuettes imported from Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand cast a benevolent eye over the setting.
Our inviting new bar area has an illuminated onyx bar top and flat-screen TV for sports and playoff action. We’ve also added a new lounge area that’s ideal to unwind for conversation, drinks and lighter fare and our dining area also includes a large “Chef’s table” for families and groups of twelve. During the spring and summer months enjoy our signature and refreshing Thai cocktails in our heated exterior patio and enjoy the open air throughout the day and night!
The refinements we’ve done run deeper than just the surface. We’ve expanded the menu and have enlisted new chefs from Thailand to offer our guests a wider range of traditional Thai dishes as well as signature creations all made with market-fresh spices and exotic imported ingredients as well as a respect for preparation and presentation that is both traditional and authentic. Longtime devotees need not worry, all of our old favourite dishes are still included on the menu as well.
We offer daily lunch specials from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. for $9 a plate as well as a Happy Hour featuring appetizer and drink specials daily from 3 to 6:30 p.m., and we’ve extended our hours to open late on Friday and Saturday nights for those who like the nightlife.
Step inside and as they say in Thailand, “sabai sabai” — Relax. Chill. Leave your worries behind.
